STAFF REPORT

Kissimmee, Fla - The Newington boys baseball team defeated Maloney 6-4 on Tuesday night for its second consecutive win to start the season, thanks in large part to junior Joey Zawisza. He not only recorded the win while striking out five, but he also went 2-3 at the plate with a triple, two runs scored and an RBI. Senior Nate Torres added an RBI triple of his own in the game.

The Indians scored four runs in the first inning to jump all over Maloney and held the lead the entire way. The Spartans scored four runs combined in the fourth and fifth innings but only recorded four hits in the game, none of which were of the extra base variety.

SOFTBALL

Capital Prep 27, Goodwin Tech 10: The Goodwin Tech softball team did not put forth its best effort on Tuesday night and were blown out because of it. The Gladiators committed 13 errors which allowed Capital Prep to score 27 runs despite compiling just seven hits. Goodwin Tech had seven hits as well and put up 10 runs itself but the sloppy play was too much to overcome in this one. Freshman Valerie Ramirez took the loss for the Gladiators.

BOYS GOLF

Farrell Leardi shot a 58 for Goodwin Tech among the other highlights.
